You can get 4.34.72, by downloading direct from http://oss.linn.co.uk/trac/wiki/DownloadKonfig. That pretty much fixed the problem for me.

RE: New Exakt Filter - Akubarik?
Many thanks timster, David HB and Baba yaga. have followed your advice and all is well. I now have v4.34.72 and Akubarik filter 5. Must admit I took the lazy version.
Cheers

Harvey and Pookah

There is no such thing as a stupid question. Period.

There are however such things as stupid answers ... Smile

This is correct. The DSM uses the Exakt link to communicate with Exakt hardware. As long as the two are compatible the system will work, and changes in compatibility happen rarely (and Konfig will warn you if this happens and offer choices to fix).

Why are there two versions? Was the first 3.0 version not compatible with the filter selection feature and has the second version been introduced to make it compatible?

A good question followed by the correct answer. A few filter versions were selected to be ported so that they were compatible with the latest compiler/firmware for filter selection in the new Konfig. In the history document this leads to two matching entries for filter versions, with different dates only.
